Almaty Akimat (city authorities) is implementing a vegetation rejuvenation plan.
Akim (Mayor) of Almaty Akhmetzhan Yessimov gave the exact number of trees in the city: 1 371 000.
More than 36 thousand of green plantings were planted in Almaty last year.
A documentary film The Origins of the Apple by Catherine Peix got the Audience Award in the International Film Festival of Asian Cinema.
Mass tree planting started in Almaty.
The risk of avalanches escalated in winter at Shymbulak skiing resort and in Medeu gorge because of the trees fallen by the storms in spring.
According to him, the clean-up teams working to remove the fallen trees lack tractors and sawmills.
Akhmetzhan Yessimov criticized the speed of elimination of storm consequences and cleaning up of fallen trees in Ile-Alatau national park.
Public facilities of Almaty and employees of the Emergency Situations Department continue cleaning up Medeu area.
